2016 NASCAR Kobalt 400 Betting Odds

 

Following the first race of the season with a new, low-downforce rules package and a softer tire, the Sprint Cup Series heads to Las Vegas Motor Speedway, another 1.5-mile racetrack. This week is unique as NASCAR will allow the teams five hours of testing time to work with the new package and tire combo before the normal weekend practice schedule.

While some bettors are waiting to see which teams hit on new setups and find speed during Thursday’s test sessions, Kobalt 400 futures are available for those looking to jump on early undervalued numbers.

Kevin Harvick   +400
Jimmie Johnson   +500
Matt Kenseth   +600
Kyle Busch   +700
Joey Logano   +750
Kurt Busch   +1100
